This is one of those weeks where I donâ€™t have a catchphrase. Except in talking about it, this is probably the catchphrase in particular.
Well whatâ€™s new in the world this week? Well, to answer it with a shred of obviousness, Spider Man 3 is coming out on Blu-ray on 10/30, right next to the other two films as part of a trilogy set. No word on if the first two films will port over extras, but the third film includes making of featurettes, bloopers, commentaries and the usual bells and whistles. Sony is also trying to slam dunk things in the fourth quarter, as the first and second Hostel films will come out on Blu-ray one week before also, with Lionâ€™s Gate releasing King of New York. That same day, HBO will release the final part of The Sopranos series on both platforms. HD DVD supporters will see Inside Man, Seed of Chucky and the Carlitoâ€™s Way films on 10/23 as well. Hardware wise, the only real news of the week is that Toshiba will be releasing third generation players in the October timeframe, with specs to be announced and pricing in the $300-$500 for all three models. In terms of releases this week, TNMT and Disturbia come out on both platforms, while Blu-ray exclusivos get to choose from Final Fantasy, Arlington Road and Are We Done Yet?
Thatâ€™s it for me this week, and as always high definers, keep the brightness low and the resolution high!
